NetBSD Alpha installation fails towards the end
(after the steps accepting root password and
setting time zone) with the following messages:
UID 0 comm sysinst on /: file system full
write failed, file system is full
I am installing on to a 9GB disk and it is a
full installtion (everything in the kit -
base + man + X cliient, server...)
First I used the default partitions (128MB for
root, ~256MB for swap and rest of it for /usr).
When this failed (with the above error), I
allocated everyting after swap (which I
just increased to 512) to root.
This also failed with the same error.
After the message, the shell prompt is
displayed. Also I can boot from the disk,
but it then it does not present the login
screen as excepted, instead displayes the
The 'df' command shows (for every
directory - dev,usr,bin... under root):
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
root_device 8132381 234825 7490936 3% /
This error is reported for other platforms
in various messages. The solutions suggested
are to increase size of /usr (in some cases)
but here I had all the area in the disk
available to any directory.
Can somebody help? please...
